The Tower Tidy
At the end of January on a Saturday morning a group of St Peter’s ringers and helpers arrived at the Church with a collection of ropes, buckets, brushes, dust masks and hard hats. The occasion was “The Great Tower Tidy”: a clean-out of 50(?) years of debris, dust and rubble from the bell and clock chambers. By lunchtime some 20 bucket-loads had been swept and bagged-up ready for disposal, and the two chambers looked spotless. Even the floor boards under the bells were visible, and they probably hadn’t seen daylight for years. Well done and thanks to all who helped!
